Weight Loss

Yerba Mate helps with weight loss!  Ultimately, research concludes that yerba mate helps with weight loss by acting as an appetite suppressant, increases caloric burn, increases matabolic effectiveness, and improves the effectiveness of other weight loss herbs when they are combined with yerba mate. It could become the most important tool for your weight loss goals. At the bottom of this page we have provided links to all the yerba mate weight loss studies.  Fortunately, the Lead Researcher at Examine has provided the most thorough research, analaysis, and scientific review of all those yerba mate weight loss studies. What follows is an explanation of the ways that yerba mate helps people to lose weight. 

Yerba Mate Acts as an Appetite Suppressant Tea

Yerba mate helps eliminate feelings of hunger by working as a natural appetite suppressant tea.  In Europe and Latin America, Yerba Mate has long been used for weight loss “as the ideal slimming remedy which facilitates losing weight in a natural way and stills the distressing feelings of hunger,” according to Max Witchl in Herbal Drugs and Phytopharmaceuticals.  Researchers at the University of Surrey in Guildford, England confirmed what millions of users experience, a reduction in appetite when using Yerba Mate. Dr. Oz recently noted that Yerba Mate's weight loss ("fat busting") qualities made it one of the best herbs you could add into your diet for weight loss, the only herb that burns fat all over the body, and has the best appetite suppressant qualities.

The appetite suppressant qualities are achieved by learning how to drink yerba mate with the special extraction techniques that flood your body with nutrients, thus satiating the body’s desire for food. 

Regions of the world have survived drought by using yerba mate with the mate gourd and mate straw. The popular Chilean herbalists J. Zin and R. Weiss supported what Peace Corps workers had reported: They found cases in which large groups of natives remained in good health, with only one small meal per day, through extended periods of famine and drought. They survived by drinking copious amounts of yerba mate tea. Additionally, they uncovered healthy Gauchos, rural "cowboys" whose diet was all meat with only yerba mate as the vegetable. The yerba mate provided enough nutrients to act as a vegetable.  Indeed, the Gauchos referred to it as "drinking a salad."

Yerba Mate Increases Calories Burned & Your Metabolism's Effectiveness

Dulloo, A., et al. noted in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that a drink like Yerba Mate can increase the “24-h energy expenditure and fat oxidation in humans.” (1999). Thus, more calories are burned when drinking Yerba Mate! Yerba Mate accomplishes this increased calorie burn at a higher rate than other teas, like green teas.  This is explored in more detail here: Yerba Mate vs. Green Tea: Which Is Better for Weight Loss

Yerba Mate Improves Effectiveness of Other Weight Loss Herbs

Dr. Torben Andersen conducted a study in which overweight patients lost 11 lbs. in 45 days while using Yerba Mate in conjunction with other weight loss herbs. (Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics Volume 14 Issue 3 Page 243 - June 2001) He found that it contributed to "weight loss and delayed gastric emptying following a South American herbal preparation in overweight patients."  You can buy the world’s most popular weight loss blend online.

Ultimately, Yerba mate tea helps eliminate feelings of hunger by working as a natural appetite suppressant tea, as well as incresing your bodies ability to burn fat. The body is truly revitalized into health when you drink yerba mate!
